Flower Mound Volunteer Fire Department annual barbeque fundraiser

LAWTON, Okla_ The community came out Saturday to support Flower Mound's finest as they cooked up a feast to give thanks to the community for their support, and more importantly to ensure they have the funding they need to battle future fires.

It was the 9th Annual Barbeque Fundraiser for the Flower Mound Volunteer Fire Department.

This year their goal was to raise enough money to purchase a garage for their fire trucks, since they're currently being stored at firefighters' homes.

Jeanette Ketchum was there, and volunteered her time baking desserts for the feast.

She may be related to department's chief, but that's not the reason she gives back.

 "I have two great-grandchildren that go to school here at Flower Mound, and I was born and raised east of Lawton and know a lot of people east of Lawton and this is where this Fire Department would help people out. So it is close to home," Ketchum said.

The Flower Mound Fire Department helps more than 500 businesses and homes in their area.

Last year, this fundraiser raised enough for the department to buy two new fire trucks.
